Looking good Gene.

If you open the link in another window you can right click on it and select copy image. Then you can just paste it into the reply window. That's how I got them to show in my post. :)

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

saturday the guy who bought my b210 came by and gave me a hand on working on sweet pea/ green 521 that i am selling. after i had cleaned up the oxidation and polished the original paint peviously he installed the headlights, grill and trim rings and we installed the wiper assembly/heater box assembly and the dash and plugged in the wiring harness and i need to install the speedo cluster next. and reattach the brake lines to fittings then i might install running motor that was in grimace when i first got it and get it running and bleed the brakes and clutch
